Wall of Sharing: Moveable Feasts

Saturday, October 06, 2018
Walnut Creek Libraries - Ygnacio Valley
"If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast." Ernest Hemingway, to a friend, 1950."
- Epigraph on the title page of the 1964 Scribner edition of A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

Read A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway and be inspired to share a “moveable feast” of your own in 6 words.
Pick up  a submission form in September at the Ygnacio Valley Library.
With your permission, your “moveable feast” will be added to our Wall of Sharing.

Visit our library to learn more about this year's One City, One Book program produced by the Walnut Creek Foundation.
